This is very true to games such as “Pokémon Go” and “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite” with its very essential gameplay requires players to go out in order to play. By this, new updates ensured players of the opposite so they could progress through the game.
“Pokemon Go”, particularly, initiated some changes, such as rendering the distance need to walk to incubate a virtual egg by by half, which aims to prevent oneself or their neighbors from risk of virus infection. PokéStops will also drop Gifts more often than usual.
Nearly in a classic way of playing Pokémon, more monsters will appear in the wild with increased of Pokémon habitats for a non-inconvenient way to pursue the “Gotta catch ’em all!” path.
Players can also make a one-off purchase of 30 Incense, a virtual item that attracts Pokémon to a single player, in exchange for a single PokéCoin (25 Incense usually cost 1,250 PokéCoins).
Normally, PokéCoins are bought for $0.99 for 100, but the new update features one coin earning each time a Pokémon returns from a Gym location.
These measures were taken as addressed to aligning its updates from World Health Organization coronavirus guidelines to a more risk-free gameplay for all players.
